Coronavirus (COVID-19) and Adjudication (ACUS Update)
The Administrative Conference of the United States is maintaining a collection of resources related to how federal agencies are managing adjudication caseloads under the extraordinary conditions created by the pandemic. The collection includes resources for agencies such as ACUS recommendations, ACUS-commissioned reports and handbooks, and similar non-ACUS materials. It also offers an extensive list of notices, policies, and other information that agencies have issued to address the crisis. These latter materials are organized by agency.
It’s an impressive collection that should be of use to agency personnel and also to researchers and members of the public interested in understanding how the federal government is (as ACUS puts it) “manag[ing] . . . adjudication caseloads while promoting public health and safety.” ACUS is regularly updating the collection.
